About the SYAMFA Concerto Concert

To help aspiring young musicians prepare for the rigors and rewards of performance careers, the Festival includes a competitive concerto division. Students who choose to enter this division have the opportunity to be selected for concerto finals where the most accomplished are invited to perform with a professional orchestra. Each year, up to six outstanding young musicians are chosen by Festival adjudicators to perform in the Young Artists Concerto Concert.

The concert is a musical event of the highest caliber and should not be missed by any classical music lover. Concerto Division winners have gone on to study at The Juilliard School, the Curtis Institute, Eastman School of Music, and other prestigious schools.
